During the first two years of the doctoral studies, the students of the doctoral studies at the Nencki Institute are bound to pass one (selected from the two mentioned below) course of thematic lectures, agreed with the thesis supervisor, ending with an examination. Every year, one of the two courses is organised interchangeably: "Biochemistry and molecular biology", "Basic neurobiology". The thematic lecture from the other course may be selected by the doctoral students as one of additional lectures, in agreement with the scientific supervisor.
